New York City

Trees decked out with holiday lights cast a romantic glow outside Manhattan's famous Tavern on the Green. After 75 years in business, the Central Park restaurant will close to bankruptcy after a final New Year's Eve dinner. But fans of the Tavern , where John Lennon used to drop by and play the piano, won't be entirely starved: The over-the-top Baccarat chandeliers, Tiffany stained-glass murals, mirrors, copper weathervances, silver candelabras, place settings and other interior decor will be up for auction Jan. 13-15.
